My family doesn't like pot roast, but this recipe is the ONLY one they will eat. We love how moist the meat is, and tasty too! Nothing better on a cold winters day than the smell (and taste) of this delicious roast.
Herbed Pot Roast. It is wonderful. Its much better when it comes out of the crock-pot. My brother loves this so much. When he comes home for the holidays I make sure I make it for him.
This is a very tasty roast. Great amount of herbs that compliment each other. This is my go to roast recipe.
I make this pot roast once every couple weeks, it is delicious and the recipe doesn't need to be changed at all.
